Everybody gets nervous or feels uneasy toward the dental treatment, and it is the problem for most of the dentists how to relax the patients, however, if you approach them from the side of the oriental medicine which is based on the 'Qi', you will find that this is the most effective method. As you may know, there are a variety of methods or different kinds in the Chinese 'Qi-Gong' therapy. When you give the therapy, there are two ways: One is the therapy that you try to put your mind or 'Qi' into the patient wishing to cure him, and the other is the one that you automatically give without any mind or 'Qi'. I'd like to compare these two ways how they effect to the patients according to the clinical, physiological and objective observations. Also, I'd like to mention about the 'Qi' in the field of dental clinic and its practice how we actually practice at our clinic with showing some examples of the 'Bi-Digital O-Ring Test' originated by Dr. Yoshiaki Omura in U.S. from the view point that the 'Qi' be considered in the electromagnetic field.
